Description

3D concrete printing is a novel and advanced manufacturing technique enabling the rapid construction and design of intricate, sizable structures. This technology offers notable benefits rooted not only in ecological and economic considerations, as it obviates the need for extensive mold production. It also ushers in fresh aesthetic attributes for a modern touch. Designer Philipp Aduatz, working with Austrian manufacturer Incremental 3D, has created a unique furniture collection using 3D printing and concrete in different shades. They utilized a new method where dye is added directly into the printing nozzle, coloring the concrete piece by piece, instead of all at once. This reduces the amount of work and time needed while producing vibrant and one-of-a-kind furniture. This method also produces less waste than traditional processes, making it more environmentally sustainable. The collection includes benches, a stool, a chair, and a large vase, and it incorporates gradients and innovative shapes through an interactive process. This approach to 3D concrete printing allows for the creation of large and intricate structures with new aesthetic qualities. One major challenge in the project was finding a way to make the designs strong enough to bear weight, as concrete is not naturally strong under tension. To address this, they leveraged customized semi-automatic method and added high-performance steel to provide the necessary support. The incorporation of steel was done seamlessly, resulting in furniture that is both durable and aesthetically appealing.
